Electricity Load Shedding Worsens on Start of Summer 2015

Winter 2015 have been worse in terms of load shedding. There have been massive load shedding, despite the fact that winters have off-peak demand for electricity. And despite all those pre-election claims of PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz) about ending the load shedding, the situation just gone worse in winters. We witnessed load shedding of 8 to 14 hours and sometime worse. Now we are on verge of summer 2015, when the demand of electricity is on its peak. It is just mid of April 2015, the weather have just started to get hot and load shedding is already increased to 10 to 16 hours in normal routine. Which is as same as about last year, there seems to be […]

Pakistan Govt makes New Records of Electricity Load Shedding in Winter Season in Jan 2015

Pakistan is the country which faces the power cuts through out the year due to gap in production and demand. But normally due to low demand people have to (thankfully) bear nominal electricity load shedding in winter season. This has been the case from decades. But this time things gone sideways, mismanagement of PMLN (Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz) made the power disappear in the month of January when winter is on its peak and power demand is near bottom line. As of today People of Pakistan are facing loadshedding of 9 to 13 hours per day in cities and more than that in villages. k2This Power crisis was caused due to the Oil crisis which was also created due […]

Are We United as Pakistanis or as Muslims, for that matter

It is fact that we have searched and dug up many divides for ourselves, these divides set us apart from each other. And when I use the word us, I am referring us Pakistanis. These divides are of many kinds, which include religious, cast & creed, localities, languages spoken and than finally new kind of divide here is political. Religiously, we have been divided in many sects, each one is busy telling other that the path of religion they are following is the right and other one is wrong path and will have to pay for that later. Similarly, based on language we speak or province we live in, we have divided us on those bases. The most interesting divide […]

People of Pakistan Forced to Face Twelve Hours of Electricity Load Shedding even in Winter Season

It is now 2015, here we are in Pakistan, facing the same problems as we had in year 2014. One of these problems is electricity load shedding, which have struck this time with more impact. It is winter season, when the electricity demand is the lowest, but people of Pakistan have to face 12 hours of load shedding in urban areas, in rural areas things are much worse. We are not facing the electricity load shedding here in Pakistan because we do not have resources or enough plants to generate enough electricity for winter season, we are facing it due to the incapable political administration led by PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz) who do not want to run the […]

Pakistan Faces Load Shedding in Winter as well Courtesy Artificial Power Shortage by Government

Its winter time when the power demand in country is lowest of all times. Power demand in Winter ranges from 9000 MW (Mega Watts) to 12000 MW. Pakistan have operational capacity of producing electricity over 20,000 MW. However at most governments run the plants to produce the power around 16 to 17 thousand megawatts in summers. The interesting thing is many times the government in summer claims the they are producing say 16000 MW and demand is 19000 MW. OK, that is understandable, but why on earth in winters we have to face load shedding. Answer lies in fact that either its summer or its winter, government tries to keep running the power plants on flow of water or any […]
